We elucidate the present status and prospects of fusion reactors which are considered to be ultimate energy source. Issues and engineering approaches to plasma confinement schemes for fusion reaction control, first walls, blanket, materials, and engineering concerning fusion reactor design are lectured.
To understand the engineering issues to realize fusion reactors by obtaining knowledge about nuclear fusion reactions, plasmas, cooling, fusion materials, etc.
nuclear fusion, plasma, magnetic confinement, tokamak, helical devices, blanket, neutron irradiation, cooling, fusion materials, super conducting magnet, plasma heating, plasma diagnostics
